I have been in this situation many times and the answer is often gas logs. I have had clients with damage to their chimney flue inside a wall and believe they can put a gas log fireplace kit into their wood-burning fireplace instead of repairing the damaged flue. This is a mistake, and a dangerous mistake. Gas logs use liquid propane or natural gas instead of wood for fuel. When gas burns, oxygen is burned and carbon monoxide is created. If there is damage to the flue, a typical gas log fireplace is not the answer because the fresh air ventilation is still necessary to pull out carbon monoxide. The answer is ventless gas logs. Vent free gas logs do not have to be vented. When a client wants to design a custom outdoor fireplace but they do not want to build a chimney and cut through their patio roof, a vented gas log kit is the perfect solution because no ventilation is necessary.
It is essential to have a fireplace screen in your fireplace in order to add appeal to your simple house. Classic and modern designs of fireplace screen are available so you can choose the kind of screen best for your fireplace. If you want to add a classic appeal to your fireplace, you may want to purchase a vintage fireplace screen and if your home has a modern look, there are a lot of contemporary designs to choose from. When it comes to safety, a screen for your fireplace is necessary as it protects your house from fire sparks. You have to make sure that your home is safe and it is best to take caution in order to protect your loved ones. Though having a fireplace is a good thing, you need to consider certain thing such as safety precaution because the first thing you want to do is to prevent fire from happening.
Now moving on to modern fireplaces and the look they can provide your place with some outstanding modern fireplace accessories. The accessories that accompany a fireplace should be selected wisely so that the functionality of the fireplace can be released to the maximum. Stylish and well designed accessories such as log holders, patio fire pits, andirons, screens for the fireplace and log stands are perfect buys when you are planning out a charming and stylish fireplace. Patio fireplaces have also gained skyscraping heights of popularity in the times of today. The accessories for patio fireplaces may include stuff like wrought iron, modish and classy patterns in wood, etc.
One of the obvious reasons is that there is no need to clean a fireplace when an electric fireplace insert is used. After all, there is no burning wood and there are no ashes or embers. Of course, in addition to the cleaning required for a traditional fireplace there is also a need for purchasing firewood and other items. Of course, with an electric fireplace insert there is no need to shell out money for these additional, ancillary items. As such, electric fireplace inserts can prove to be very cost effective. So, there is no reason to ignore the value of electric fireplace inserts if you already own a traditional fireplace.
